The 4th best team in the group is the one that came 4th (Poland). USA
was the 2nd best team in the group and therefore qualified. That's
football in all its mystery. Your excellent goalkeeper Friedl saved
_another_ penalty against Poland. Your boys fought hard for the
points they won against Portugal and South Korea. You should be very
proud of your team who now rank amongst the top 16 teams in the
World. It's no mean feat.
